    Very disappointed. Veranda's patio was dirty and lacked Holiday decorations Food and service was good, but tacky, unkempt patio was not what it used to be. We looked forward to a special luncheon and it did not deliver.

    The Veranda is one of our favorite restaurants in the San Diego area notwithstanding that it has gotten rather expensive. If the prices keep going up we may not be able to continue to enjoy it there

    We had a wonderful meal. The Thanksgiving feast was wonderful and we had the best sourdough bread. Hope the bread stays on the menu. Entire family loved it. Crispy on the outside and soft center warm- perfect!

    Thanksgiving on the Veranda was a great first time experience. We were seated right in front of the fireplace on a beautiful sunny day, felt like the best seat in the house. Three course meal was delicious and plenty of food, even took a bit home for turkey sandwiches later. Service was welcoming, and attentive and they were well staffed. We had a wonderful time

    Delicious food as always, and impeccable service by Debbie...as always. It was a cool morning the day before Thanksgiving, and we were shocked that we were the only people willing to brave the chill on the patio. We sat by the fireplace and had two heaters at the table which made it extremely comfortable, and the morning was just perfect.

    Love the atmosphere and live music. The service is never great. First we were sat at a dark table, couldn’t barely see in front of you, and the hostess spilled one of our guests glasses of wine. We were only offered to move after making a complaint, never offered to refill the spilled wine. Service was slow and we were not checked on often.

    We've eaten here many times: the ambience is very nice, and the Friday night singer (Kevin James O'brien) is 'very' good. The food this time was good, but my wife's dish was a bit strange: the lamp chops were a bit fatty (though reasonably tasty), but the couscous under them was 'cold' - which seemed very strange and cooled off the lamb chops. (The waiter said the couscous was designed to go in a cold salad). Service was good, and we enjoyed the evening.

    Food did not match price paid. Service was ordinary to amateurish. Waiter was asked to split check and screwed it up. Check contained a $12 service fee, asked waiter for explanation and was told some BS that it was a resort fee. They should cut the surprise fee and if they need more money put charge into the already overpriced menu items. Valet stand unattended for 20 minutes, looked through drawer to retrieve own key. Will not be back.

    My fiancé and I went to dinner there last night. The food was fantastic, we were outside but the staff were moving heaters around near the tables to keep people warm, there was an artist playing guitar for ambiance and the fire place was lit. It was beautiful and made for a great evening.

    Quieter music tonight, so much better. You can actually converse. Margarita pizza, boring. Crust on edges and near by, thin and deliciously crunchy, center too thick and tasteless. Cheese burger again delicious. Server tonight much more interested and helpful!

    Sitting near music was too loud to converse. Hamburger delicious. Steak wedge salad not so good and used Romain lettuce instead of iceberg. We asked to split and they brought us a whole salad each. Way too much to eat!! We didn’t split cuz of cost but because we wanted 1/2 as much. 10/16/22

    Drinks were very good, service was excellent. The short rib flatbread app wasn’t as flavorful as I would have liked and the crust was very dry (it’s described with a habanero and honey glaze so I expected a little heat tempered by the sweet… pretty one note). The veranda is beautiful although our night had some mist. Overall, I would come back and try for dinner.
